Today, a small, socially distanced Remembrance service, led by South Wales Police Chief Constable Jeremy Vaughan and officiated by force Chaplain the Reverend Glynne James, was held at police headquarters in Bridgend.
Chief Constable Jeremy Vaughan said:
In total 93 police officers who served with our predecessor forces died during WWI. Another 48 during WWII. They served in the Royal Navy, the Army and the Royal Air Force, and in the Merchant Navy. Some died on duty as police officers.
During WWII, Swansea Sergeant William Bolton Flitter and Constable Jack Harold Jenks of the Borough Police were both killed in bombing raids on the town.
In the Rhondda, War Reserve Constable William George Davies and Special Constable Clifford Stanley Higgs were amongst those who died when enemy bombs fell on Cwmparc.
We remember them all.
